Geese, Gull, Parakeet, Feral Pigeons & Avian Control

All UK birds are protected by the Wildlife & Countryside act. However, the control of certain species of UK birds is allowed under licence as well as in certain situations and timings, such as to preserve public health and safety.

Along with Feral Pigeons, we are experienced in the management of Geese and Gulls, using a variety of measures and techniques. These include non-lethal measures both visual, auditory, and physical (nest destruction), preventative, proofing as well as lethal methods such as shooting. Prevention is our first aim.

We offer humane cage trapping of feral pigeons along with shooting by trained marksman.

Parakeets are relatively new to the UK Pest list, being added by Natural England in 2010.

Parakeets are a non-native invasive species within the UK, often out competing the native birds which has led to an exponential growth in their population across London and the Southeast. Both parakeet species can be found in large flocks often holding hundreds of birds and can be a noise nuisance due to their very distinctive calls.

Parakeets can cause serious damage in both urban and rural environments. When in large numbers, they can decimate local flora and woodland, as well as agricultural arable land. The birds can nest in the fabric of buildings, causing significant damage to properties.

Parakeets are able to out compete native bird species, for shelter, food and breeding sites.

Our parakeet management team specialise in the management of parakeets in both urban and rural areas, controlling the overall population of the birds in the area whilst also, controlling the damage and further spread of the birds in the UK. The management team has a wealth of knowledge and experience with parakeets and can offer a multitude of management techniques to suit the situation of the job. Ethical and sustainable management of the parakeets is key to promote a healthy population in the UK, whilst also minimising damage to property, land and our native flora and fauna.
